A Western Detective/Lawman Novel
A killer leads three lawmen a merry chase into dangerous renegade Kiowa territory. Read how will they get out of this one.
Hawk, his 6'2" partner Merle, and a long-past-retirement sharp old deputy Pike Winslow bust a cattle rustling ring while in pursuit of a killer, who eludes them and sells black market army rifles to renegade Kiowas in exchange for stolen gold bullion. They have to come up with a way get out from the midst of all those armed Indians, recover the gold, arrest Pearson, and get the gold to Denver. But the trail doesn't end there. The army garrison colonel who takes charge of the recovered gold disappears with the bullion. The chase isn't over yet.
Tyrone Narrowhawk - a Harvard educated Indian known as Hawk, raised by a powerful federal judge, given a U.S. Marshal’s star and sent covertly into the western territories using his wits and a gun.
Merle Johnson - a former Calvary Lieutenant sharp shooter turned cowboy, a good make to have at your back.
Pike Winslow - ;an old cowboy lawman well past retirement age that hasn’t slowed down a bit. In his day he taught Hawk a few things.
Many others make up this adventures tale of daring-do in the old west.
***** I don't know which I liked better, Educated Injun or Chicago Chase. I'm glad I read them both. ·· W.R. Masters
**** I loved the detail and the interplay between the characters. The author also did a fine job of describing the chase through the town and the handcar process. The imagery was specific enough for me to picture everything in my mind, but not so much so that it bogged down the action. Overall, I enjoyed this story and would recommend it to folks who love a good western, a good chase or mischievous characters with a lot of personality (gotta' love how Hawk always manages to snag one or more of the Judge's cigars). ·· Patricia Hamill on Goodreads
***** Old West that does NOT get boring! Wild west? More like FUN west! lol This was my first western type of book. I found this really fun to read because it was not a simple basic story. It wasn't written using basic outlines. None of that dictated dialogue and prefab character development, just a really cool web of a story to wrap my head around. I LOVE a story that makes me think. ·· Jennifer Elizabeth Hyndman @ Amazon
